I did a thesis on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) using Cognitive Psychology and Activity Theory as a background. Cognitive Science fascinates me but I have little experience with it. At the moment I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen, at the PIT lab studying HCI, but I mainly have a software development background.

In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012.

comment How repeatable are cognitive science findings within the same individual?
When dealing with humans, you always have to take into account learning effects in experimental design. The main difference with the type of machines you are referring to is those machines don't have a memory. Humans do, and subsequent tests will always be influenced (in predictable and unpredictable ways) by previous experiments.

comment Why do we prefer visually aligned objects?
Given the OP's request for an explanation as to why we prefer things as such I wonder whether you could add any references in order to substantiate your closing addition.

comment How do emotions influence the language structures we use?
Perhaps you might be able to get an answer on linguistics. Unfortunately I can't migrate the question there anymore since this question is older than 60 days. In case you ask the question there, consider deleting this one after you have received answers. Also keep us posted if you post there.
